Dori Media Group (DMG), the studio behind such global hits as Losing Alice, Lalola, The New Black, Ciega a Citas and Dumb, has renewed and added new territories for unscripted format Power Couple in numerous global territories, it was announced today by Nadav Palti, CEO & President of Dori Media Group.

Power Couple, which was created by Abot Hameiri, has been renewed in Germany, Romania, Hungary, Croatia and Solvenia for additional seasons. Additionally, the series will be expanding to new territories as its being adapted by Banijay Nordic in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway.

Power Couple, which first debuted in 2014 in Israel on Reshet, has now been sold to over 15 global territories including Brazil, Mexico, India and South Africa. The series follows both celebrity and non-celebrity couples that move into one villa together and compete in a fast-paced series that determines who is the Power Couple!

In Germany, where the hit series is known locally as “Das Sommerhaus der Stars,” it has been renewed for a ninth season on RTL. And in addition to the celebrity version in Germany, RTL will also be producing a spin-off with non-celebrity couples. The spin-off will run on RTL+.

In Hungary, Power Couple has been renewed for an 8th season by RTL and it’s also been renewed for a 5th season in Croatia by RTL. POP TV has signed on for a third season in Slovenia and after a strong debut in Romania, the series is set to return for a second season on Antena.

“We are thrilled that our hit format Power Couple continues to drive large primetime audiences to our network and streaming partners across the world,” says Palti. “The success is so big that Germany is now producing two seasons and we are expanding across the Nordics. This series puts couples to the test and captivates viewers of all ages wanting to see who truly is the Power Couple.”

Power Couple is different from all other reality shows in that its rules and rationale are made up of something we can all experience together with the participants – relationships. Couples participate on Power Couple in order to check and empower their relationship. Not only to test how much they really know about each other, but how much money they are willing to bet on it.

Power Couple is a format about relationships, and all in its mantle has one purpose – to allow each couple to examine his or her relationship. All couples live, some for the first time, in one house, for a long period of time, with other couples and for the first time can see what their relationship looks like in the eyes of other couples and also learn from the other couples around them things about their relationship.

The couples on Power Couple participate in tasks that they cannot prepare for; the tasks do not measure physical ability or knowledge. The relationship is the basis of any task that examines different aspects of the relationship. In order to win, they need to function together in the relationship, work as a team, and know each other.

Earlier this year, Dori Media announced it was selling both the new Spanish-language episodes of Lalola, which debuted in February on ViX, as well as the series’ format rights to global territories outside of Latin America and the U.S. Lalola, which is produced by Dori Media International, is a modern-day remake of the hit International Emmy-nominated romantic comedy that originally aired in 2008-2009.

Dori Media also recently announced the opening of sales for two of its big new action-drama series, Amia and Indal. Amia, which was filmed in Uruguay and Argentina, was inspired by the terror attacks of 1992 on the Israeli embassy and 1994 against the Argentinian Jewish community. Indal is an action-packed series that follows the kidnapping of a police officer by a group of Ethiopian Israeli youth.
